NEW YORK TIMES writers Gerth and Van Natta have teamed up to write an unauthorized biography of Hillary Rodham Clinton. While they point out that Clinton's inner circle did not authorize the writing of the book, nor would they participate in it, there is nothing newly controversial here. Erik Singer narrates with a decidedly nonpartisan voice, keeping a neutral but interested tone as he takes listeners through the workings of the Rose law firm, the Whitewater scandal, the Monica Lewinsky fiasco, fund-raising issues, and Clinton's Congressional record. The authors paint a fairly balanced portrait of the former first lady and current senator and presidential hopeful, focusing on her strengths and shortcomings with equal measure. Singer maintains that balance and keeps the book moving. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
